Our Mission

A STRONGER, MORE COHESIVE COMMUNITY
The community will be stronger and more cohesive, with pride in its diversity and the leadership and organisational capacity to influence change, to seize new opportunities and build a sustainable future
A HEALTHIER COMMUNITY
Residents, especially the elderly, will enjoy better physical and mental health and well-being, through exercise, better eating, reduced isolation, mutual support and better services
A MORE CONFIDENT AND SKILLED COMMUNITY
Residents, especially young people, will gain skills and feel more confident about their future employability and life chances
A CLEANER, MORE ATTRACTIVE ENVIRONMENT
The image of Thames ward will improve – people will perceive it to be a cleaner, more attractive environment that encourages neighbourliness and makes better use of local facilities, open space and buildings.
A COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT TRUST
The project will establish a resident-led Community Development Trust to ensure the initiatives that have emerged over the past three years are sustainable.
